Sometime in the past I recall reading about a company that make scope mounts for the 92 and 94 that did not require new screw holes for the mount.  Can anybody recall seeing a advertisement for a company that does this?

Here’s what for me has been a great option.  This (.32 Special of course Laugh) carbine is one I’ve had for over 40 years.  It has Leupold “Detacho” mounts with a Leupold long eye relief scope.  I suppose for the last couple decades this would be called a Scout Scope.  However, this carbine was thusly equipped long before anyone used the term Scout Scope.  The carbine came with this set-up when I bought it so who knows how long it had been on there.

There is one tap hole required – and that’s in the top of the barrel band.  However, if a person wants to keep their carbine original, purchase a spare barrel band to be tapped and save the original.

I had great success with this carbine and killed many deer with it.  It was my main choice for several years of deep woods whitetail deer hunting.  You can see through the scope and all around the scope simultaneously.  I had a couple running deer shots that impressed me anyway.

It was Jeff Cooper who first promoted this idea in print, though he may or may not have “invented” it, & that was over 40 yrs ago, maybe 50+.  Also think “scout” was his name for it.

If you can believe what you read on the internet:

“The scout rifle is a conceptual class of general-purpose rifles defined and promoted by Jeff Cooper in the early 1980s.”

My 94 carbine precedes that date.  I purchased it about 1980 and as I said, it came set-up the way it sits now.  

Here’s some vintage Leupold instructions:
